"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
Yes, I think it should be legal, for the reasons already listed here and because my own observation says that stoned people usually don't cause as many problems as drunk people.
At this point the argument is moot. It is de facto legal in most places. So many people smoke it that the cops won't bother going after people who have a joint on them or are lighting up in public.
I smoked da ganja for a few years, then just didn't care about doing it anymore. Never smoked, nor will I ever smoke cigs... I say legalize and tax mari jane. There is no way to win that war, so legalize it. The herb isn't any better or worse than booze, in all fairness...
I don't smoke and am against it. Pot-heads are like they are stuck in "slow-motion" mentally and physically. Sometimes it is frustrating watching them....
